Wasp Barcode Technologies Launches New Thermal Printers

PLANO, TX, Jun 26, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) —
Wasp Barcode Technologies, a leading provider of small business
productivity solutions, today announced the launch of the WPL25
Desktop Barcode Printer and the WHC25 Desktop Wristband Printer.
Designed specifically for speed and durability, both products use
direct thermal technology to provide accurate images and barcodes of
the highest quality. The thermal printing technology used in both
printers uses heat as opposed to ink, making the printed label or
wristband smudge proof and durable.

Wasp’s WPL25 Desktop Barcode Printer features a high-quality
clamshell design that makes the WPL25 ideal for printing high
performance labels for healthcare, retail, shipping, and office
environments. The WPL25 barcode printer uses a 200 MHz processor that
prints labels at speeds up to 5 inches per second at 203 dpi print
resolution. For easy integration into various business environments,
the Wasp WPL25 comes standard with USB and serial interfaces. The
WPL25 also comes with optional peeler, cutter, and stand-alone
keyboard making it easy to create an all-in-one barcoding and
scanning solution.

The WHC25 specializes in printing wristbands that contain text,
graphics, or barcodes to increase accuracy and eliminate the need for
manual, handwritten, or stick on label wristbands. These secure,
long-lasting wristbands are designed for applications such as
healthcare patient ID tracking and entertainment ticketing. The WHC25
LCD screen displays the printer’s status and makes it easy to
troubleshoot away from a PC. The WHC25 can also be a standalone
printing station and can be configured to print wristbands should
your computer go down by simply plugging a keyboard into the printer.
The 8MB SDRAM and 4MB Flash ensures quick wristband print speeds up
to 5 inches per second, while the 32-bit RISC processor allows for
faster throughput and higher levels of productivity.

“The purpose of both the WPL25 and the WHC25 is to promptly print
high quality, durable thermal barcodes that continue to increase
efficiency for today’s office environment,” says Brian Sutter,
director of marketing at Wasp Barcode Technologies. “Unlike inkjet
printers, thermal printers offer high printing speeds and are
extremely reliable. By using heat instead of ink, the WPL25 and WHC25
create durable images that remain readable for up to 50 years.”

        --  High quality double-walled clamshell design with 5 inch maximum outer
